FAQ

 

What is the capacity of the BrightVolt battery?

BrightVolt offers multiple form factors and capacities in our production thin film lithium batteries ranging from 10mAh to 48 mAh.

Are custom battery sizes and capacities available?

Yes, we regularly design and manufacture custom power solutions for our IoT clients. The form factors range from about half the size of a fingernail and up, and we can make multiple shapes and capacities including circular and cylindrical depending on clients’ needs. Please contact us for more details.

How thin are BrightVolt's batteries?

Production BrightVolt batteries are less than 0.450 mm thick.

What is the expected shell-life of the battery?

Shelf-life is dependent upon battery type and storage temperature and conditions. For cells stored at or below room temperature, expected shelf-life ranges from 3 to 5 years. Prolonged exposure to temperatures that exceed room temperature detrimentally affect batteries. For extended storage in a refrigerated area, BrightVolt recommends the use of vapor proof packaging to prevent moisture egress.

What is the monthly self-discharge of the battery?

Self-discharge is dependent upon battery type and storage temperature and conditions. At room temperature, typical self-discharge is less than .5% per month.

What is the expected useful life of the battery?

Battery life is dependent on the power profile and operating conditions of the device you are powering. BrightVolt can assist you with projecting product life. To discuss your application in more detail with a technical representative, please contact us directly.

How can the BrightVolt battery be attached to an electronic circuit?

The dual battery terminal design of BrightVolt products enables a variety of attachment methods. These include soldering, conductive z-axis tape, conductive epoxy and ultrasonic welding. Once a customer establishes an MNDA with BrightVolt, more detailed technical information is available regarding this topic.

Can BrightVolt batteries survive the hot lamination process?

Yes, BrightVolt batteries have been successfully integrated into hot lamination processes with temperatures up to 135°C.

Do BrightVolt batteries meet ISO standards for bend and flexibility testing?

Yes, BrightVolt cells pass all ISO bend and flexibility testing and are ISO 7816 Certified.

Are BrightVolt batteries RoHS compliant?

Unlike many coin cell batteries, BrightVolt batteries do not contain RoHS restricted/controlled materials. Furthermore, unlike conventional “liquid or gel-cells”, BrightVolt’s patented technology is dry, making it very safe and extremely flexible.

How do I obtain samples?

You can order samples by sending us email @ info@brightvolt.com.bus leo.

Can BrightVolt help me identify other component suppliers?

Yes. Once a customer establishes an MNDA with BrightVolt, they have access to BrightVolt’s extensive network of partners in areas such as flexible displays, semiconductors, lamination services, attachment services, etc. BrightVolt can also refer you to full design & integration.
